I have had a lot of stress lately, and still have. It bothers me so much I can barely think about anything else, I lose my appetite and get sick. Even when I draw my attention to something else, like work or a book, the problem always remains in the back of my brain as a tiny, annoying spot, whispering: “Here, I am, … Still around! You shall not forget about me! – Love, Problem XY”
I tell myself that it will be solved sooner or later and that more carefree days are ahead. And they are. I have my favourite passion – my travels – and my family, and I have a good job with nice co-workers around me.
So, dear me,
just try to think positive, relax and take a bunch of deep breathes. Imagine yourself chilling at the beach, the hot sun kissing your face, there is a gentle breeze and a drink in your hand. Stop worrying about stuff you can’t change and just go ahead. It won’t kill you!!
My response: It’s really hard to, but I’ll try. I’ll start right now. I’ll do some butt kicking Billy Blanks – Tea Bo workout and then I may have a tiny glass of Irish whisky. I will read a good book, all cuddled up on my couch and watch the snowflakes fall down outside… And start to get ready to go to Madrid for the weekend: Sangria, Tinto de Verano, Cava, Tapas….
I hope it’ll help! what do you guys do when you have things that bother you? Eat ice cream? Drink alcohol? Talk to people? Escape? Write blog posts?
Although I like the thought about escaping (I’ll pack my bags on Friday), it surely cheered me a little to write this down, so if you ended up reading until here! Muah and many thanks!
– Love, Sabine
